More about the Bettye Rose Connell Lecture series

The Bettye Rose Connell Memorial Lecture series was founded in 2009 in honor of Dr. Connell’s important contributions to the field of gerontology–including her work on the Principles of Universal Design–and to move forward fields of investigation including architecture, design of the physical environment, and the interaction between physical environment, aging, and behavior. The two-day annual series consists of a lecture on the evening of the first day, followed by a scientific seminar on the second. Both events are free of charge and open to the public.

The Emory Division of General Medicine and Geriatrics, the Atlanta VA Center for Visual and Neurocognitive Rehabilitation, and the Birmingham/Atlanta Geriatrics Research Education and Clinical Center (GRECC) sponsor this event each year.
